FCA recalls several models for software upgrade

Nearly 5 million vehicles affected

Fiat Chrysler America LLC announces the company is recalling an estimated 4.8 million U.S.-market vehicles to upgrade software in their power train control modules.

The company adds the upgrade addresses an unlikely sequence of events which would compromise cruise-control functionality.

In response to driving conditions such as varying road grades, these cruise-control systems automatically initiate acceleration, as needed, to help vehicles maintain driver-selected speeds.

A driver could be unable to cancel cruise-control.

In some sequence of events cruise-control acceleration can be overpowered by the vehicle’s brakes.

The vehicle may also be stopped by shifting it into neutral and braking accordingly.

F-C-A US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents involving the affected vehicles.

The recall involves the following models:

2015-17 Chrysler 200 sedan

2014-18 Chrysler 300 sedan

2017-18 Chrysler Pacifica minivan

2015-18 Dodge Challenger coupe

2014-18 Dodge Charger sedan

2014-18 Dodge Journey CUV

2014-18 Dodge Durango SUV

2014-18 Jeep Cherokee SUV

2014-18 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV
